Hello NettyCosplay , i was wondering, what have you used for assemble the wood parts of the rod itself, it look likes little pieces of wood but i'm not sure, and what have you used for the support of the gold balls on the side of the heart shape ? Thank's ^^
Yes, these are little wood dowel pins. But the staff can be seperate into 3 parts, so at this point I used special screws (engl. hanger bolt) The bigger golden balls were some plastic balls I found in my "DIY box" XD (I collect many things because I love to make this or that by myself) and glued them at the side. I don't know anymore where they are from, but I coverd them with some gold foil... (the smaller balls in the middle are 2 golden pearls) The "sidearms" are made like the Heart from PU and fiberglas + model clay for the fitting
The Garnet Orb (heart) is covered with fiberglas. The pic 14 shows the glasfiber and how I put it on, and pic 15 is with resin, the finished fiberglas. I sand it a bit, and put another layer of resin (pic 16/17,the red colored resin under the primer.. I don't have a pic of the 2nd layer.. sorry). When you see my "WIP Sailor Galaxy Sword" there you can see some more steps with fiberglas..
oh sorry, i meant do you know a store that sells the materials you've used- the plexiglass/ polyurethane/ resin etc. i'm looking for a europe-based store or website that sells the raw supplies, such as the fiber ribbons you used and the resin
Hey may i have permission to feature your progress photos in my facebook page? i will give full credit. its meant to assist other cosplayers in completing their projects, and answering any questions they may have! check it out and get back to me THANKS! www.facebook.com/amateurcospla…
I love how you made the time staff out of all of the replicas it's the only that looks the most acurate. I plan to cosplay as sailor pluto for momo-con next year in atlanta and i was wondering if you can tell me all the materials you used in making the staff I was appreciate it so much
All materials I used, I write in the descripition (of the wip and the finished prop) Many other asked questions of how I made this or that, and I tried to answer them in the comments. Perhaps you will find your answers there and if not, just tell me your questions - I hope I can answer (it's so long ago I made this staff XD)
Ok i have one final question its a two part question the first part is what did you use to make the key blades on the staff and after the hearts were cast in resin and the fiberglass what did you use to make for the sides of the heart? and the second part is what did you use to make the upper part of the staff where the garnet orb sits
That's a bit complicated to explain. In the middle there is a wood staff (like the other parts). On Top I glues a half acrylic ball and filled the parts outside with clay. There stripes are of polystyrene, and went from the bottom ot the wood staff till the edge of the acrylic halfball.
